F07 indicates heater relay stuck.
You need to check the heater to see if it is faulty, and fit new one if it is.

SOURCE: I have an F8 fault on my hotpoint wf860p

f8 is shown when the heater circuit is on with no water in.. it doesnt do it when you unplug the pressure switch because your disabling the heat protect circuit

THE BOARD IS PROBABLY FAULTY

F08 indicates pressure switch stuck on full.



Unplug the appliance from the wall socket.

Take the top off the machine.

Locate the pressure switch, you can identify it by the thin tube attached to it.

Take the tube off, blow down this tube as hard as you can to shift any blockage or restriction in the pressure chamber. Give the pressure switch a couple of good taps with the screwdriver handle.

Refit the tube and try the machine again.

If still doing it, unplug again and follow the tube down.

This end will be attached to the pressure chamber.

Take this chamber off and thoroughly clean it out, clean out the port into the tub too.

Reassemble and try again.



If after this it's still faulty you'll need to start replacing parts.

I'd suggest trying a new pressure switch first.

Failing this, if all of the above fails to resolve the problem you're possibly looking at a faulty main control board.

Hotpoint Aquarius wf 325, why does the on/off switch flashes and programme cuts out


Does it show a fault code. You can look up what these mean on hotpoint/Indesit website. We had issues with our machine when water pressure was low but works fine when pressure ok ( showed code For that). When it had a motor not moving fault code we found it cheaper to use Indesit own repair as it gave a fix or replacement guarantee for 1 yaer The parts needed would have been over 200 pounds and wee now have 15ish per month repair contract and no other charge. (only lasts 1 yr). Our local repairer said circuit board and motor over200 + 100ish labour.

Hotpoint ultima washing machine is showing a fault


F 05 normally means there is a blockage or a fault with the pressure sensor. The common place for blockage is in the black pipe from the drum to the pump as it has a filter in here and clogs up. remove the pipe and clean the filter out and remove gunk from the pressure sensor on the side of the pipe as well. If that does not fix things the pressure switch could be faulty itself
